Fodor's Review

The Brazilian Supreme Court building is classic Niemeyer—an otherwise ponderous structure seems lighter than air because of the curving lines of the columns that support the roof. In front of the building is one of the city's best-known monuments, the 10-foot granite statue Justice, by Alfredo Ceschiatti. Except on weekends, you have to book ahead for a guided tour.
